"I liked very much Frank Lampard and Didier Drogba. I liked the way they played and even more when I came here and I had the chance to have them in the dressing room. As idols, they became even bigger."
- Chelsea Football Club defender Cesar Azpilicueta
“I watch the games and Dybala looks like the best player out there. Anyone who criticises him is mad, because Dybala is the new Leo Messi. He will become a player like that and is already reaching that level."
- U.S. Città di Palermo chairman Maurizio Zamparini on Juventus and AFA - Selección Argentina forward Paulo Dybala
"I really like Toni Kroos. When I neared the end of my career, I followed him closely and tried to play like him. I was a midfielder with an eye for the goal, but Kroos is one of the best midfield masterminds in the world."
"Mario Götze is the best German footballer. He has such an incredible talent, he can just do everything on the ball. I consider him to be a player with quite extraordinary abilities, I like him very much."
"It was a dream for me to be among the best players of last season and I hope I can continue on the same path. That said, it goes without saying that I couldn’t have done it without my team-mates at my club and in the national team. They deserve just as much credit."
